This book is OK. I like the ideas presented in it but I just don't like the endless anecdotal stories that seem to come from the author's life. This book could have been 1/3 the length and still conveyed the same message. ( )

The title is a bit of an overstatement of the content, but that's how you sell books right? ( )

Every Christian should read this. The points may be hard to take, but they are points that need to be made! ( )

I dare any Christian to read this. If you allow the wisdom of the author, coupled with what Christ taught, to penetrate your soul I guarantee you your world will be rocked from the complacency and apathy of the American version of Christianity. Jesus was indeed a radical. And radical is what we all should be. So radical should our lives be that we be willing to risk even our very lives for the sake of Christ. One of my favorite quotes from this book is, "To everyone wanting a safe, untroubled, comfortable life free from danger, stay away from Jesus" ( )

I appreciate what he's trying to do, but his fundamentalism taints everything. ( )
